Small, curious little fellows. They travel in packs. Sometimes live in termite hills. The group of them runs around bumping into one another, wrestling and rolling around. They remind me of the Keystone Kops.
We came across the scene below one day in Botswana. A Leopard Tortoise strolled through a Banded Mongoose neighbourhood. The mongoose were very curious and watched and followed but didn’t get too close to the meandering hard shell.
